Hello! For over 25 years I have consulted and taught on the topics of digital photography, workflow, image backup, printing and color management for individuals and corporations. I served as Editorial Director of Digital Imaging Techniques magazine for two years, where I wrote and edited numerous articles and reviews on the topics of digital and fine-art photography, inkjet printing, and Photoshop techniques. I've also conducted seminars across the United States at photo-related conferences including the Arles Photo Festival (Arles, France) and the PhotoPlus Expo (New York City), and have lectured and/or taught at institutions including Columbia University and the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York City. My photography has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows, and my work has been included in many photography publications. I'm the editor and founder of The Imaging Buffet Digital Magazine (https://imagingbuffet.com) and I publish a Photo Tips Newsletter, which includes tips and techniques related to fine-art printing and digital imaging. I've written four books (all related to photography), and my Amazon Author page can be found here:


Upcoming Half Day Lightroom 4 Workshop in NJ with Andrew Darlow

For more than two years I’ve been teaching photographers and other artists how to get the most from Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, including editing, organizing, presenting and printing images using the application. It’s a very powerful tool, but it definitely takes time to learn, and Lightroom 4 brings with it many new features and a new processing engine.

In the upcoming weeks and months I will be teaching some Lightroom workshops in New Jersey. Here are some details and a link to more info on one of them. I will post information on some others as they get closer (my workshop/events page will generally have all of them listed):

Class Title: LIGHTROOM 4 WORKFLOWS: How to Organize, Retouch and Print Your Images

Location: duCret School of Art, Plainfield, NJ

Date: Sat. April 7, 2012
Time: 10AM-2PM

Fee: $50 ($39 for those who register by April 4)

A full description and online registration information is available here: https://lr47.eventbrite.com/

To show an example of what I’ll be covering, this particular image will be shown step-by-step from raw capture to the final edited image. I think it shows what’s possible when you use Lightroom’s Develop Module to recover highlight data and use the application’s selective adjustment options:

Adobe CS4 Officially Released: Related Links and Webcast Info

In case you haven’t seen the news, earlier today, September 23, 2008, Adobe Systems released a big update to the Creative Suite family of applications. There is a lot to cover, and after reviewing a number of resources that cover this news, I’ve highlighted a few sites that lead to more links, as well as some direct links to related info.

1. First, if you receive this e-mail in time, I recommend visiting this page to sign up for a live webcast to see many of the new features in the CS4 suite. I was unable to attend the 9am Eastern (EST) webcast, so I signed up for the 9am Pacific (PST) webcast.

2. Next, I recommend reading this post by John Nack, which will lead to many excellent resources.

3. And to see the full lineup of CS4 products and new/upgrade pricing (all of which include either Photoshop CS4 or Photoshop CS4 Extended), visit this page on Adobe.com.

4. There is also a very good overview of a late Beta version of Photoshop CS4 by Wayne Cosshall of DImageMaker.com here, with some mini tutorials.
